“We consider Big Sandy as a partner. They help with incumbent worker training and in leveling up the skills of new workers. They also do a lot of soft skill leadership training for us.”

Kentucky is one of only a handful of states that has not begun to reinvest in higher education since the end of the recession. The Governor’s proposed budget reductions will put Kentucky further behind and significantly impact our ability to produce the highly skilled workforce necessary to compete for new business and industry and the expansion of existing companies. If the Governor’s proposed cuts are instituted on top of the $39 million KCTCS has been cut since 2008, this will create a total cut of $56 million. It is our hope that, at a minimum, our state budget remains whole without further proposed budget reductions.
By signing this petition, you are asking legislators to invest in Kentucky jobs by investing in KCTCS. Please sign the petition and become a Champion for KCTCS!
“If not for KCTCS allowing me to go to school and work part-time, I wouldn’t be where I am today…the owner of a million dollar business.”
